Walking in each other’s shoes

Catch ‘The Change-Up’ on HBO at 4.20 pm on May 7. Growing up together, Mitch and Dave were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they slowly drifted apart.

While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked. To Mitch, Dave has it all — a beautiful wife Jamie, kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitch’s stress-free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave’s worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other’s bodies and proceed to freak out. Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each other’s lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed. The movie stars Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds, Olivia Wilde, Leslie Mann and Alan Arkin.

Beyond the fame and fortune

In ‘The Game Plan’, rugged superstar quarterback Joe Kingman is a confirmed bachelor living a dream life: he’s rich, famous and the life of the party. But this football hero is about to tackle his biggest challenge yet when the eight-year-old daughter he never knew he had arrives on his doorstep. Now, he finds himself torn between answering the demands of his teammates and the requests of his daughter. He’s also not finding any support from his hard-edged agent, Stella, who also lacks any parental instincts. Over time, Joe discovers that there’s more to life than money, endorsements, and thousands of adoring fans: the love and care of one very special girl. Tune in to the film on Star Movies at 9 pm on May 7. It stars Dwayne Johnson, Madison Pettis, Kyra Sedgwick, Roselyn Sanchez and Morris Chestnut.
